Since Christmas is coming, I'm going to crack open a tin of Rattray's Hal O' The Wynd from 1994. I think it's probably aged to perfection by now. Or maybe it's completely moldy! We'll find out tonight! It's going in a Savinelli Autograph the size of my fist. LOVE those big pipes that are still light enough to hold in the jaw.
I just ordered a pound of Hal in bulk from www.pipesandcigars.com. We'll see how the old compares vs the new! Assuming the old has survived a decade and a half, that is.
